  • to promote effective library service within the academic community
  • foster a spirit of cooperation among members of the library profession.

Membership in LAUNC-CH is open to employees or retirees of the UNC-Chapel Hill Libraries and to faculty and students of the School of Information and Library Science at the following levels:
